About the Speaker​


Head of Research, Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation (CAMES),
Center for Human Resources,
Capital Region of Denmark, Herlev

Dr Peter Dieckmann is a psychologist, who has worked with simulation since 1999, and focused on simulation in healthcare since 2001. He is currently Head of Research at the Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation (CAMES). He received his PhD for his work on simulation in Anaesthesia in 2005. 

Dr Dieckmann is driven to work with simulation, largely because it can lead to improved patient safety and quality of care. His areas of interest include research on simulation and research with simulation. His research on simulation contributes to a better understanding of how to use simulation for education, training and research (e.g. investigating debriefings as learning opportunities). His research with simulation uses simulation settings to explore performance-shaping factors, such as failures of prospective memory; how to use simulation to optimise health care failure modes and effects analyses; or how to use simulation to investigate the usability of medical products such as medication labels. 

Conceptualising simulation as social practice, he is interested in simulation as both a tool for analysis and intervention. Dr Dieckmann is a Past President of the Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine (SESAM). He was Co-Chair of the International Meeting on Simulation in Health Care (IMSH) in 2011 in New Orleans, which attracted approximately 3,000 participants. Dr Dieckmann is also Associate Editor of the journal, Simulation in Healthcare.
